Yes, I am super excited because my little ones are growing up fast. I remember that day like yesterday, regaining consciousness from a c-section, the only words I could mutter was, ‘Where is my baby?’. I spoke those words several times. My hubby brought her close to me. My heart was full of gratitude as I stared at her endlessly. I am a mother again!
God blessed me with a daughter. She sparks up our world while her brother gives us lots of sunshine. She is curious and quick to learn. I am also learning patience and selfless giving. Yes, I am super excited because she cooked her first meal successfully. She learned watching me, as I diced my onions, seasoned my chicken and chopped my vegetables. She watched me pick out the plates and saw how I served their meals.
I never knew, that she was all the while learning even as a little baby strapped to my back, while I made meals everyday. She would stretch her head forward wanting to see every single thing I did. Little did I know that she was taking it all in and those images came alive as she put her knowledge to the test.
I smiled watching her some days ago, as she picked out everything she needed to make her first meal. She mixed, she stirred and then she cooked. Dinner was ready. She went on to serve herself and tasted her meal. She calls out ‘Mummy’ and gives me a big smile. I smile right back at her. And yes she is a little over 2 years old and she cooked her first meal successfully.
I am a mother. My life is a book full of lessons. My words are a sweet or bitter fountain. My actions are daily teaching morals and values.
Every day, my little ones are watching. They see what I do and will learn a lot about this thing called ‘Life’. Everyday gives us opportunities as mothers to teach, to lead and to love. The way we live our own lives is how they will learn about life.
What current is flowing out from the streams of your heart? What words are you speaking to your kids? What kind of stories are you telling them from the chapters of your own life?
My daughter cooked her first meal and felt great. She learnt by watching me make their meals everyday. Our children will do what they see us do. They pick up a lot by simply watching us. We are the mirror they stare at to see what they really look like.
I am a mother and I am willing to become a better person. I seek to grow and learn so that I can have many lessons to teach. I am ready to give it my all, that I might be a worthy teacher and my life an inspiring story.
